is mentioning in all of these tragic shootings, including the law office in san francisco, they were all gone- free calzones. -- gun-free kill zones. the gun is not the common denominator, but these allow any madman or criminal with any kind of fire arm to come in and shoot as many law-abiding americans as he can. this proves not that the gun is the problem but that gun-control itself is a failure because there is no stronger form of gun control than to say no one is allowed to have a gun at all. otherhat's exactly the common denominator for all of these tragic occurrences. not one person in the mainstream media has pointed it out to their viewers because it does not sit with their anti-bond big it should -- anti-gun bigotted nature. it is being marketed shamelessly in the mainstream media. i swear these people are trying to introduce a new form of bigotry and to american culture. gun-control is the new racism. cnn in particular should be ashamed of itself for what it has done this week on trying to manipulate and inflame the prejudices against guns and gun owners. it's despicable and it's a

, but i also want to bring in from san francisco andria dellendorf who is the chief in making changes at walmart. >> good to be here this morning. >> what sort of gains did walmart workers make with this strike this year? >> well, the most important gain they made is that they proved that it is possible to stand up and speak out against the country's largest employer, and workers have faced low wages. they have faced lack of hours that walmart has been in existence, but it is the first time that walmart workers stood up. walmart threatened they would lose their jobs, but they all walked back in with their heads held high to tem brace of their coworkers so they proved that it is possible to stand up around the low pay and poor working conditions they faced. >> andrea, it feels like walmart is a perfect storm narrative about the current working conditions in the u.s. you have low-wage workers with difficult working conditions. you have consumers who want the low prices that are promised in part by the low wage workers and then you have a full global supply chain which because of our des

. [laughter] buddhism and its nonviolent -- the san francisco has been a leader for supporting democracy in burma and in supporting aung san suu kyi. buddhism and its non-violence tradition has been a source of strength for the nonviolent democracy movement in burma. but aung san suu kyi has seen her supporters beaten, tortured and killed. she has never responded with hatred and violence. she has asked only for peaceful dialogue and progress for democracy. she has always believed that the need for democracy for all the people of burma was more important than her personal need. indeed, she made great personal sacrifices in terms of her own family as senator feinstein pointed out. one admirer described her as a seeker, a seoul pilgrim, one that makes her life a vehicle for a deeper awakening to truth. aung san suu kyi walks in the footsteps of her beloved father and the giants of history. for her personal sacrifice, for her inner strength, for her love of burma and its people, and for being an example of strength and courage to the world, today we are proud to honor her with the congressio

here for 250 or people in san francisco, another expensive city, it doesn't go that long, didn't go that far. >> dave: the bottom line, it appears they've moved the goal post and it may be around the $400,000 mark and that may be the new 250 if you will. may be where ne get the deal done. and upwards towards the 500 mark, but here are two congressmen on perhaps moving this up. >> the $400,000 level seems to me to be about right, that represents about the top 1% of the income earners, the people who got 93% of the income growth our last year and that seems to be enough, but i think there's some flexibility there. >> it's about making sure that we can live within our means and address the real problem and that's spending. i kind of feel like i'm a lifeguard and we've got to save as many people from drowning in higher taxes as we can. >> clayton: that seems to be the new threshold 400,000. who knows to peter doocy's point the paper handed back and forth in the deals last night. it seems you hear from republicans and democrats that 400 maybe $500,000 may be where it comes. >> dave: does
